Gutter Runner

Gutter Runner portrait


For a Gutter Runner, stealth is everything. Always moving in the shadows, the Gutter Runners wear a black cloak to blend in with their surroundings and make as little noise as possible. Equipped with Warpstone Rat Claws that glow a sickening shade of green, the Gutter Runner will expertly leap at its enemy, using its weight and momentum to knock the player onto their back. Left prone and vulnerable, the Gutter Runner will then proceed to hack into the hero's torso, forcing the rest of the players to rush to the aid of their comrade. Having undergone gruelling training in their mysterious fighting styles, the Gutter Runner is able to bend and contort its body, making it incredibly nimble and able to move at speeds unobtainable by man. While attacking a hero, it will focus all of its attention on them, but once the other players start to attack it, the Gutter Runner will roll backwards and disappear into a cloud of smoke.


Dodge, Roll And Disappear

When a Gutter Runner is outnumbered by the players, it will roll backwards and disappear in a puff of smoke, only to come back at a more opportune moment. Keep your eyes and ears open.

Mysterious Death

If you manage to kill a Gutter Runner, it will explosively dissolve into a murky-looking gelatinous substance. While nobody knows exactly how they do this, the Gutter Runners never leave behind a corpse to be analysed.

Assistance Required

When a player is pinned by a Gutter Runner, they are incapable of escaping its brutal attacks on their own. Remember to stick together and be ready to save a fellow hero in need, or watch them being torn to shred beneath Skaven claws.
